Reader feedback: Think thermal

Re: Green power blows into Slovakia, By Conrad Toft, August 24 - 31, Vol 9, No 32

Wind energy has been unlocked for decades in Denmark, where. fifty to sixty percent of all windmills are produced. It is a well-known energy technology that works, also in the long-term view. And, it is not noisy, not compared to a lawnmower or cars passing by on the street.

The cost of producing energy is a matter of definition. Wind is free, so far. Fossil energy is simply too expensive.

Whether there are enough windy spots in Slovakia for windmills though is a bit doubtful, unless they will be placed on top of the High Tatras. And that would, of course, ruin the landscape.

Slovakia should think thermal energy, fuel cells and such things instead.
